“If all the eccentricities and all the strangenesses in this world suddenly disappear, people will fall asleep from the boredom! Every kind of oddities make life more interesting, less boring!”

This Saturday’s WEEKEND CHALLENGE on partner Susan and my alternate site was the word ODDITIES.
I happened upon this unusual collection of black leaves clinging to a dead tree as I was parking my car in a nearby senior citizen’s community center recently.
The tree’s upper branches lacked leaves of any kind except for this odd cluster of dead leaves swaying freely in the light breezes.
Other trees in the immediate area still had their summer foliage.. This one particular tree was the definite odd ball in the neighborhood. It was more unique than odd because of the way the leaves clung to the center portion of the tree a little below the bow.
The branches above were devoid of leaves. Quite an oddity of nature.
